What to wear to those fall events where you want to look chic but still comfortable for an entire day?
My style tends to encompass simplicity and ease. If I can just throw it on and walk out the door, I am a happy camper. I used to think looking fashionable had to take a lot of work and styling but, I have come to learn that great style can also be found in a minimalistic look. With the cooling weather trends, I now also want to add a bit of warmth to that style.
This Zara dress is amazing because it is basically like being wrapped in a blanket with its thick quilted texture and loose fit. It is also incredibly easy to style and wear. Pair it with tights or comfy leggings and boots and you are ready to go. I added the jeweled link bracelet from J.Crew for a bit of sparkle.
The fringe purse from H&M also is a super easy way to elevate any simple look and is perfect for fall with it’s suede texture. The gold chain also immediately gives any outfit you wear it with an elegant vibe.
My favorite element of this look might actually be my lip color, however. I have not yet jumped on board with the bright red, opaque lip color trend yet. Every time I see Taylor Swift or others in the media wearing it I think, “That looks downright gorgeous, I could pull that off”. Five minutes later I’m staring in the mirror in shock of this crazy red lipstick on my face looking like a child who played dress up with mom’s makeup. After some trial and error, I discovered the perfect red lip color for me and for anyone who wants a luxurious red that isn’t quite so “in your face” bold. Aveda carries a line of sheer mineral lip colors called Nourish-Mint. My color is called Sheer Muscadine, which in the tube looks extremely dark, but goes on in sheer layers. You can get the perfect amount of red that you feel comfortable and gorgeous in. It also smell amazing which for some reason makes me love it even more.
Styling chic fall looks can be as simple as this. You’ll be ready to take on date night, drinks with the girls, or any other occasion, all while feeling confident and comfy long into the night. 🙂
